    Two different animals, you might as well say it's okay to eat humans since we're animals. Dogs are secondary consumer and higher on the energy pyramid and require meat, to gain meat at a lower mass than a primary consumer. infact if you love cows so much why would we need to go feed dogs meat for lower quality lower rations of meat? How many cows would you have to kill to feed how many dogs.
    >But street dog-
    Wow so you would eat vermin and disease infeated meat, taking a life to barely sate your appetite? That's the thing, a cow's life will feed more humans than a singular dog's life, and you would require less energy to get them to that point.

    Vegans, foreigners and libtards beaten by good old fashion science and logic again.

    the reason why we only eat the animals we do eat is because every thing else either wouldnt be a good animal for production or it taste like shit, the industry all ready has to try its best to get people to eat pork out side of bacon, i only like beef chicken and fish, you would have to make some animal onions green to feed to poor people if you wanted to try and get people to eat all that other shit even though making meat out of most animals that arnt the size of cows would economically be retarded and taste like absolute crap

            Because you would be doing less harm, and these days it's almost trivially easy to be vegan if you have access to a supermarket. That being said, if you really don't like the idea of taking pills, you don't even have to do that, because there are so many foods with B12, Iron, etc. added into them. And there are so many good meat substitutes now that there really is no excuse at all for the average first worlder to keep eating meat.

                >difference between animals and humans
                We can reflect qualities such as love and justice. Animals only act on instinct. We have the ability to learn languages, appreciate and create art, and enjoy and make music. And unlike any animal, humans have developed religion and complex thought. Here is an example. Try and show a horse a painting, what do you think will happen? It will become disinterested and walk away, same with a sunset or any other natural beauty. Animals are inferior to humans in every way imaginable and deserve to be subjugated to better humanity, breed into playthings for our own amusement, or eaten. No amount of philosophical cope or ethics screeching of "meat is murder" will change this.

                both humans and animals have the exact same mechanisms of suffering, because who would've guessed, humans are animals

                Humans are so much more than just a mere animal. You crying about the poor inferior animal does nothing to elevate their position. You lowering yourself to their position is pathetic. They are beneath humanity.
                Show me the rhino Plato or the hippo Socrates and I will listen to their philosophy of life.
                Give me the Ceasar eagle or Alexandar falcon and I will walk in his Empire.
                Grant me the Snake sculptor or tortoise painter and I will wonder at their art.
                Oh wait, none of those animals can do any of those things because they are merely beasts of the land. They bend to the will of man. And they either accept we rule over them or they die. That is what separates us for them.

                your only reason humans are above animals is that there is no animal philosopher or whatever. There is no baby philosopher either. So are adults sufficiently above babies that they can eat them?

                I'm not even arguing that humans and other animals are completely equivalent - I'm simply saying that animals suffer the same exact way humans do. So it's wrong to make them suffer for your own enjoyment. it's pretty simple

                lmao no, just because animals suffer does not mean you can build a torture camp for them and feel fine about it. They have the mental capacity to understand their own suffering because it works in the exact same way your suffering works. Anti depressants are tested on rats. Because it works on both rats and humans. Because both human brains and rat brains have the same mechanisms of suffering.

                Guess what doesn't have brains though? Plants. but even if they did - raising livestock requires growing disgustingly large amounts of plants to feed the animals - more than half of crops we grow in the US are fed to animals. It's a complete waste.

                you're making circular arguments though. you say that humans have value because humans have value. Sure, I agree humans have value. I also think animals have enough value that its wrong to kill and torture them so your taste buds feel nice for a minute

                Actually a sperm doesn't it needs to fertilize an egg and then actually make it to birth which isn't a certainty, miscarriages happen all the time. Also only one sperm fertilizes the egg the other billion are wasted. Nobody is treating their sperm like a newborn baby lmao get a load of this guy. Really starting to show that lack of 50 essential nutrients in your head. Maybe make a coherent point. Humans have babies expecting to raise them into adulthood. Everytime somebody nuts in a girl they're not expecting parenthood. What if a women's not ovulating? You are so full of shit dude for real. In like 6 years that baby is going to be smarter than any animal we eat. In 6 years a cow will be a cow. And in 6 years a sperm will be shot in a tissue and replaced a million times over.

    No and no, but unethical behavior is circumstantial and overdetermined. Someone could go their whole life without touching meat of any kind, but if they lived in the U.S., they were a passive participant in one of the most gruesome periods of mass animal slaughter the world has ever seen. There's no point in viewing it as ethical or unethical - it's happening and will continue unabated without organized opposition.

      I get your point, but at an individual level or point of view, if something is unethical, it should be avoided even without any consequential impact or change on the overall structure of things, doesn't it?

          Being a companion? Many dog breeds bred for companionship are fucking useless for any work task or are redundant/status markers. Hell the sheer utility of keeping a cow for land maintenance is a thing. Chickens can actually hunt pests very well because they still retain their foraging instincts

    It depends on the situation you are in and the culture you follow. I follow a culture where beef is a normal delicacy so I eat steak, hamburgers, etc. I don't care what happens to other cats or dogs. I care about my pet, but if I were to travel to a place that offered properly cooked cats or dogs I would try it.

    You're focusing on the killing. These animals live their entire lives in suffering and terror. The industries that produce them are pervasively harmful to the biosphere and the economy.

    Yes, there is nothing morally wrong with eating a cow or oxen for food, and there is nothing morally wrong with eating dogs and cats for food, but most of us prefer not to eat cats and dogs, so is this meant to be like some gotcha question because I don't understand your reasoning for posting thishere?

        Everywhere, cats and dogs have been eaten or killed, and the only difference between them and a cow or an oxen is that humans regard the former as pets and the latter as food.

          Are they eaten or killed on the regular or only in times of strif and conflict. Because there is a big difference between eating a stray cat when your city is besiged and you have no food vs going to your local diner and ordering the "Ruff Roofus" well done dog burger.

    Since they're not human beings and if they're not someone's pet then yes, out of the cultural context, there is no social issue with killing them for meat.

    But historically and culturally, in the west, dogs have a special place beside mankind and deserve protection and respect.
    And so killing dogs for meat should be outlawed.

      Generally speaking eating carnivore meat isn't a great idea, I'm not sure of the medical reasons for that, but it's bad for you if you do it long term.

      • 2 months ago
        Anonymous

        Carnivores absorb less energy from the food they eat since they can only process the fat and meat. When you eat a cow, you're getting the energy from the meat and the food the cow had eaten and stored in its muscle and fat. So eating a cow is always more beneficial than eating a tiger that ate a cow.

        A big reason why you shouldn’t eat carnivores is the accumulation of parasites and poisonous elements. Mercury and trichinosis are huge in carnivores
